It’s Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
My Topic today is: The Racing Void.
I have been know to run as many as 40 races in a year. Usually at least 30. Well, not this year.
Of course, I miss all the people involved in a race: my friends, the other runners, the volunteers, the crowd but here are some other little things that I also miss:
You know, planning your race outfit the night before and posting a pic.
Of course, I always plan my outfit but it’s not the same if you are not going to a race.
2.Pinning on a Bib.
It’s one of the things that makes a race different than a run or a virtual race.
No matter how many races I have run, I always feel nervous waiting at the start line.
4.Swag and Awards.
There’s something special about someone putting a medal over your head or handing you an age group award.
5.Post Race Refreshments
Free Ice Cream,
Chocolate Milk or even a Dark n Stormy.
They just taste better when you’ve earned them in a race.
Happy Running! Do you miss any of the above? Are there some other things that you miss when you are not racing? Please share.
